Who cares?

Would you trade your marriage for the legal equivalent?

Would you trade your marriage for the legal equivalent?

Think your wife would feel its the same thing?


Gays should celebrate their unique culture and institutions. As there is a legally enforceable equivalent to marriage, the reason there is a gay marriage agenda is insecurity, perhaps

This is not a valid reason for a large majority to upend their own mores.

I wouldn't view their 'legal union' in the same terms as married couples.  Would you?  It just doesn't carry the same respect or social value.

I would think that is the case.

But in reading some of yours and laughsatyou's comments.......

I think the biggest obstacle in finding real solutions is men's own insecurity.

If you were to pose a topic on eliminating child abuse and focusing on mothers - I would be right there in championing this cause and trying to find a solution.  

I would not get defensive about my gender so much that I wouldn't want to work towards a solution of something that is obviously fckd up.

I'd still try and stick to objectivity with this one

It's never let me down, but the converse does not always have a happy ending
